To see every baby born in the community adequately clothed and provided for and every new mother and family adequately cared for and supported.
Since being established in 2014 Loving Arms has been supporting families by helping over 2000 babies and their families with clothing, bedding, nappies, toiletries and larger items such as cots, car seats and prams.
In 2021 we gave out close to $1,00,000 worth of clothing and supplies to families around the Waikato and beyond.
If you are a parent or caregiver of a newborn or infant (or know of one) and need a helping hand we would love to be able to help you out.
Kaiawhina is a home-based postnatal service where we match a passionate and skilled volunteer (Kaiawhina) with a new mum that requires some extra TLC, encouragement, support and guidance in the first few weeks to months of the arrival of their new baby.
Working alongside the mothers own midwife or other healthcare provider our Kaiawhina can help the new mum adjust into their new role as a mother by providing help with basic baby care, light household duties and meal preparation.
We cannot do what we do supporting families without the help from our wonderful donors and volunteers! Follow the links below for information on how you can help us do more.
